Altered States
77" x 30"
NFS

This was a group project done by my art quilt bee and a few others including: Anne Holliday Abbott, Frances Holliday Alford, Betty Colburn, Connie Hudson, Leslie Jenison, Raewyn Khosla, Sherri McCauley, Niki Vick, and me, Kathy York. We picked a color scheme, purple, teal, and yellow and decided on 6" blocks. The idea of altered states was to make sets of original quilted art blocks and redistribute in the group. One block was kept as an original, and the other block (or blocks) was altered in any way the artist saw fit, burning, cutting, painting, embellishing, applique, whatever! We had so much fun on this exercise, that we accidentally kept altering blocks from the wrong pile. So, not every block on the left is still in it's original form. The quilt is arranged with original blocks on the left and altered blocks on the right. Find the matching pairs and enjoy! Altered States was juried into IQA, A World of Beauty and is currently on it's way to Houston!
